This degree reflects sustained study and achievement in foundational concepts of two-dimensional arts and graphic design. Hands-on studio practice, digital media skills and art history courses are required to fully engage students in the language of the visual arts and to introduce students to various theoretical approaches of art and design. Students must complete each major course and major elective course with a grade of ‘C’ or better to be awarded the degree.
At Evergreen Valley College, a community college located on a 175-acre site in the eastern foothills of San Jose, we take great pride in our approach to education. Our goal is to help you develop foundational skills, to encourage exploration in various art materials and techniques, and to inspire innovation and self-expression. Studio course offerings include fundamental studies in drawing, color theory, 2D/3D design, and graphic design, as well as courses that advance creative practice in drawing, painting, sculpture, small metals, and digital media. Art history courses appeal to both art majors and GE students, laying the groundwork for a life-long appreciation of art and artifacts of world cultures.
Students interested in pursuing careers in Illustration, Animation, Graphic Design, Web Design, Art Education, Art History, Museum Studies, Architecture, Industrial Design, Fashion, Interior Design, and Fine Arts can begin their studies here. Non-art majors take art classes to enrich their lives with a creative outlet.
